I think aol supports this and only if the person u sent it to has not opened your email yet. I'm not sure if Outlook or Outlook Express support this. some one else will come along with a better answer, so just sit tight.:blink:

Outlook supports this feature ("recall this email" in the actions menu) however, it's not always successful, even if the person doesn't read the email, and especially if they don't use Outlook as well.

As most people I know don't use Outlook, it's a pretty safe bet that you'll not be able to prevent them from reading it, if that's the purpose.

From what I've seen, most email programs (except outlook express, but not sure) have the feature of recalling or canceling a sent message, but both people usually need to be using the same email program.

As for webmail, I know of no way.

Geffy, that would mean that AOL have a starting score of 0 or above, I'm pretty sure they're in the negative numbers score wise, so adding 1 doesn't make much difference :D

I am not completely with Ryandor.
You don't have to use the same mailclient in order to -for example- retrieve a sent mail. The mail is stored on the mailserver of whoever you sent it to and if you want to retrieve it, it depends on if the mailserver on the other end (or ISP in most cases) supports it.
